This is a bold forecast from Elon Musk for Tesla’s future, but it isn’t unwarranted. Tesla’s Q3 2022 fell short on revenue, but beat out EPS estimates. It also left Q3 2022 with $21.1 billion cash on hand, up $2.2 billion from its previous quarter. The company has moved to boost its production at Texas, Shanghai, and Germany Gigafactories while also shoring up its battery supply. With these in mind, Elon Musk is highly confident in the company finishing out its fiscal 2022 in a big way. In fact, Musk believes that Tesla could be valued at more than $4 trillion in the future based on the current trajectory and future plans for the company.

Elon Musk’s Q4 2022 predictions are bold to be sure. Tesla has continued to be a leading force in the electric vehicle market. That said, it will remain to be seen when the Q4 2022 dust settles if Musk is right about its possible record finish.
